True Type Fonts Available For Kubuntu

The web seems to classify fonts into 5 categories: serif, sans-serif, mono, cursive, and fantasy. Read the remainder of the blog entry for my recommendations to Kubuntu users. Other Linux users should be able to get them as well.

Kubuntu users can install them via KPackageKit.

ttf-liberationA set of serif, sans-serif and monospaced fonts from Red Hat with exactly the same metrics as the (non-free) Microsoft Times, Arial and Courier fonts, which implies those fonts can serve as a drop-in replacement. The font family is named Liberation.
ttf-freefontA set of free high-quality TrueType fonts covering the UCS character set. These fonts are similar to the (in)famous Helvetica, Times and Courier fonts.
ttf-mscorefonts-installerThis package allows for easy installation of the Microsoft True Type Core Fonts for the Web including [Andale Mono, Arial Black, Arial (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic), Comic Sans MS (Bold), Courier New (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic), Georgia (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic), Impact, Times New Roman (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic), Trebuchet (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic), Verdana (Bold, Italic, Bold Italic), Webdings
